Training with and for your school leaders, Board. 

Special curriculum that is age appropriate for your children!

K-2, 3-5, 6-8, 9-12

Work closely with your parents to ensure total community understanding.

As always, CSM’s objective is to make you independent, not co-dependent. We want to leave you in a place where you can develop the unity of the body of Christ in your own school community. 

With Third Option City training, we have therefore created two options: 


Option One: 

Engage Daniel to facilitate a 6-hour virtual training that will educate and motivate your school leadership team and give them confidence going into this process. Cost is $1500 plus $100 per leader with a minimum of two participants. This includes the cost of Third Option participant materials. This would give you the ability to go to Option Two or Option Three. You can go directly to Option Two or Three without doing Option One. 

Option TWO: 

Engage Daniel to facilitate a 6-hour virtual training for your professional community all together with the intent that each participant is empowered to use the Third Option materials in their classes with the children and/or in working with parents and/or the Board.  Cost is $1500 plus $75 a participant. This includes the cost of Third Option participant materials. This is for a maximum of 30 participants. Beyond 30, we split the group for optimal instruction and participation. Each group pays the same training cost. 

Option THREE: 

Engage Daniel to provide virtual “Train the Trainer” training for core leaders for the purpose of turnkey training others to build a training team that can facilitate training internally for all staff at your own pace and process. Cost is $1500 plus $1550* per core leader, which includes all Third Option facilitator materials and training resources (* assumes non-profit status). The minimum number of core leaders is 3. 

Children and ChristianConversation

You are now independent and ready to implement in each classroom. Your teachers are skilled and now know the conversation paradigm. The only additional cost is to obtain your K-2, 3-5, middle school, high school curriculum from Third Option City. The cost is $5.00 an elementary/middle student; $10.00 a high school student. Each Biblically integrated curriculum is age-appropriate K-2; 3-5; 6-8; 9-12.

  1. Now you are the body of Christ and each one of you is a part of it – 1 Corinthians 12: 27 (the Third Option Focuses on Similarities not differences)
  2. And the one who trusts in Him will never be put to shame – 1 Peter 2: 6 (the Third Option Focuses on Honor and not shame). 
  3. Until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ – Ephesians 4: 13 (the Third Option replaces 'I win'/'you lose' with 'Win Win'). 
  4. I in them and you in me-so that they may be brought to complete unity – John 17:23 (the Third Option replaces I'm wrong and you're right with We Unite.) 
  5. Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone – Colossians 4:6 (the Third Option replaces 'winning arguments' with 'Winning Relationships'.)

  1. Get equipped with language around racism and honor and learn to focus on the similarities we all share to value our common humanity.
  2. Understand why this is ChristianConversation and healing rather than dividing.
  3. Learn what grouping is and how to consciously convert everyone you know into your "in-group"  in order to destroy the walls that divide us.
  4. Identify what racial "blind spots" are how to take personal accountability in overcoming them.
  5. A critical look at the powerful labels we use every day and how using certain labels can dramatically change how we honor others.
  6. Be empowered with tools and language to actively confront racially offensive behavior that you encounter.
  7. Learn how to develop cross-cultural competency by converting race conversations into race consultation by allowing others to disclose who they are.
